OVer ninety plus acts have been announced for the upcoming 2021 iteration of the Leeds And Reading Festival.
Yungblud, Neck Deep and Fever 333 will be joined by Boston Manor, Creeper, Machine Gun Kelly, Spiritbox and more!
Also, I’m going to throw in a guess that MGK and Yungblud will pop in and out for each others sets? Only because they have made some huge tracks together and they’re right next to each other on the lineup!
Yungblud’s latest record ‘Weird’ has been certified Silver in the UK.
This means the record released only in December has equated to 60,000 sales as well as debuting at the No.01 place in the UK Albums Chart!
This joins his debut album ’21st Century Liability’ which was certified Silver back in October of last year. Other certifications come from ‘I Think I’m OKAY’, his collaboration track with Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker and also ‘Parents’ which has just been certified Silver.
A few weeks ago Yungblud’s track ‘Parents’ started going viral on TikTok again. So viral that it surpassed 100,000 million streams on Spotify AND has been certified Silver in the UK.
Well to coincide with it, Dom started his own Duet trend where he asked fans to sing their own verse to the instrumental.
Check it out below.
The first video on the post is by Chloe Noone from Liverpool. Yungblud loved her version so much he released a new version with her featuring her part.
chloe is 19 years old! her verse just jumped out of the screen and especially right now what she is talking about is somethin people rly need to hear! i couldn’t wait to release a song with one of you it was always gonna happen! PARENTS feat. Chloe noon out now! (link in bio) 🖤 pic.twitter.com/fk0Ew2Ue4Z
“Parents is very much the anthem for my fan base and when I saw it was re-emerging on TikTok I asked them if I should get an artist to remix it and who should that artist be. Then it occurred to me, this song is about us, it is a celebration of individuality and a celebration of the determination of my generation so i thought **** it I’m gonna release a record with one of my fans because this song is about my fans. I found Chloe Noone, a 19-year-old from Liverpool who in her verse is singing so passionately about equality for women, it just jumped out to me and especially right now is something people need to hear!
I love Chloe and her family are amazing, I can’t wait to bring her out on stage to sing it with me. YUNGBLUD is about destroying the barriers between me and my fan base, we are one!”
And Chloe added this:
“This whole experience has just been surreal. I have been a fan of YUNGBLUD for a while now but I never expected my verse in the “Parents” duet to get much attention let alone being called up by YUNGBLUD and asked to feature on the track. I honestly thought it was going to be a very long time before I was part of something this professional and legitimate.
“I’m so grateful to YUNGBLUD and his whole team for making my dream of being an artist see the light sooner than I expected. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”

Yesterday Yungblud has dropped a new livestream special one-year anniversary edition of The Yungblud Show.
The latest installment of his YouTube series was a livestream to benefit the NIVA Emergency Relief Fund, featuring Avril Lavigne, Machine Gun Kelly, KSI – who he’s also just teamed up with for new single‘Patience’ – Renforshort, andLILHUDDY.
“It’s been so hard for independent venues,” he reflects. “I wanted to partner with NIVA because independent venues are the backbone of the music industry and give young artists the chance to have their music heard. everyone has been missing a rock n roll show, I think it’s about time we gave them one!”
In case you’ve been living under a rock in the last day or so, NASA landed their perseverance rover on Mars!
To mark the event, Yungblud soundtracked the Rover landing as he covered David Bowie’s ‘Life On Mars?’ for the event which he also performed during last month’s A Bowie Celebration: Just For One Day! concert produced by Mike Garson and Rolling Live Studios.
YUNGBLUD says: “To sing the pinnacle song by an artist that truly defined my whole existence, in a search for extraterrestrial existence was one of the best moments of my entire life. The punx went to Mars!”
Kerry Brown, CEO/Founder of Rolling Live Studios, added of the Perseverance landing: “It was amazing working with YUNGBLUD and I’m honored that Rolling Live, Mike Garson, and Bowie Band alumni got to play a part in bringing an iconic song to mark this historic moment.”
Check it out below, he comes in at the 2:06:50 mark.
Yungblud has announced that the upcoming Occupy The UK tour which was scheduled to take place next month has been pushed back.
In a video announcing the news, YUNGBLUD – real name Dom Harrison – says: “As some of you have guessed, the Occupy The UK tour is going to be rescheduled because of the state of the world right now.”
He continues: “Hold on to your tickets, this is something to look forward to. I am feeling so down that I can’t be with you all now, but I’m looking forward to when we can be together, it is gonna be absolutely mental.
“Hold that energy, let it rattle like a pan and when we’re together that lid is just gonna blow off.”
As it stands, YUNGBLUD’s massive Life On Mars run in the UK and Europe – which kicks off in September in Bournemouth, and finishes up in Dublin in November, is still going ahead.
